Garden Chores: Pruning Clematis

CVHS Virtual Open Garden Chores Video: Pruning Clematis

On March 10, 2021, the CVHS Virtual Garden Chores Team visited the garden of Darlene who took us through how to prune her Class C (or 3) Jackmanii clematis. In this video, Darlene explains which stems can be removed, how to help prevent clematis wilt, and what to use as fertilizer. She also provides some great practical advice on what to do if you don’t know what kind of clematis you actually have. Please make sure you turn your volume up for this video. Many thanks to Darlene for taking the time to share her knowledge with us!


Thanks Darlene! We’re heading out to prune ours as soon as the sleet stops.
